It would be a brave man to appoint Long after recent events- but it might be an inspired choice -or....
As my ole lad says you stand or fall by your decisions.

The reason Long left London was because they wanted to change his contract to a part time one, he said there was too much travelling involved for a part time contract. That rules him out then doesn't it??
Maybe a SL assistant coach will throw his hat in the ring. The likes of Briers or Deacon who may have SL ambitions may see it as the ideal step.

Peter Roe? Was in the running for the Barrow job.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

I honestly think we need a proven head coach, not an assistant wanting to step up. Nows not the time for risking anything. Let's get cresta in.

Yeah he would have my vote too - if he'll do it.

I'm not sure Cresta would be interested. He's got a nice job with no pressure as Head Coach of BARLA with overseas tours etc

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

Out of the coaches i've seen since the early eighties i'd say other than the obvious Walsh and Ashton that Gary Murdock was the best at getting the best team performances and best from individuals.

 

It depends on the players you inherit or can sign but to me that shows that you can have a SL or international experience but the best man for the job is the one who's got proven man-management skills and can inspire the people around him.

I think Peter and Butch look like being in charge for the next 3, maybe 4, matches now.    Obviously they are there for this weekend and if we are advertising the post in Monday's papers then you have to give at least a week for applications so that takes care of the Swinton match and then by the time the applications are sorted and interviews arranged that could take in the Barrow away game.    After that we have the Challenge Cup fixture.   Two very crucial games in there with teams we will be fighting against to stay up, so let's hope that the two lads can get it right and they get the full support of all the players.


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Gee , looking at it that way , the new coach could face a bad situation by the time he gets in if it goes the wrong way ... Or take over from guys who've started his job for him if it goes right and have got us some momentum . Pray it's the latter . I can't help feeling though that it's what we have on the pitch that ultimately will tell , and that's what we need to work on still .

And another negative is surely we can't bring in any new faces when we don't have a coach in charge.
